The Bronx Biography
Bridging the invisible barriers between modern Rock, Metal, Punk and even hardcore music, The Bronx was formed in 2002 in Los Angeles, California USA, by vocalist Matt Caughthran, guitarist Joby J. Ford, bass player James Tweedy and drummer Jorma Vik.
The first offering from the group was a 28 minutes of white hot noise, authentic imperfection at its finest, served to the world three times over during two and a half years of extensive touring. Released in August 2003 and accompanied by a handful of EPs and 7-inches, the debut is considered to be virtually out of print in the United States.
Former Guns N' Roses member Gilby
Clarke produced The Bronx's first release and played on "White Guilt",
the first single off their second, again self-titled, album which was
recorded in a converted methadone clinic in Venice Beach and issued on
Island/Def Jam in July 2006.
Approximately a year later, Tweedy left the band to be replaced by new bassist Brad Magers.
In November 2008, the band released their third eponymous full-length disc, hereby known as "The Bronx III", which sees the anarchic Californians beef up both their sound and their line-up, thanks to the addition of a second guitarist, Ken Horne.
"The Bronx" (IV) will be released by White Drugs/ATO Records in the U.S. on February 5, 2013. The 12-song set is the band's first album in five years and comes as the group celebrates its 10th anniversary.
